The 2014 NBA Draft is (finally) in the rear view mirror, and with that, the league will begin to transition from draft preparation into the wonderful world of free agency.
However, much time and effort was spent by the clubs in getting themselves ready for this year’s draft, and it seems only appropriate that the various organizations would be evaluated on the moves that they elected to make.
In the spirit of that evaluation, it is time to grade each and every one of the league’s 30 teams.
From the aspect of fairness and even-handed analysis, alphabetical order has been chosen, and the teams will be examined as if their draft day trades have been fully accepted and approved by the league itself.
The bookends of former Kansas swingman and top overall pick Andrew Wiggins and former Baylor power forward and “Mr. Irrelevant” pick Cory Jefferson tell a small piece of the story, but there is much to dissect in between. Without further ado, let’s get things rolling.
